In November 1990 he completed his neurology training with honors and then undertook a visiting fellowship at the PET Department Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen, Switzerland before starting in 1991 his PhD in neuroradiology under the supervision of Professor Klaus Leenders. In 1995 he started as Assistant Professor of Neurology at the North Shore Hospital/ New York University hospital where he continued his research on defintion of imaging biomarkers of the dopamine system and associated neurodegenerationsthe processes. He also focused his research on characterization of brain networks in PD using FDG-PET. He received the first award from the National Parkinson Foundation for ‘young researchers in Parkinson’s disease’. In 1996 he was awarded the Junior Faculty Award and in 1996/97 from United Parkinson Foundation and Parkinson's Disease Foundation for his research in the field of Parkinson’s disease.

In addition he is actively involved in the use of continuous infusion of levodopa and apomorphine infusion as well as subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulus (STN-DBS) for the treatment of motor fluctuations and dyskinesia of complicated Parkinson patients.
